Then why are Democrats against new nuclear energy that uses safe carbon pods to produce clean energy?


I don't know the answer to that. I'll look into it. Also this question was whataboutism. In case you wanted to know.

Correlation is not causation though. Mask usage is most definitely a proxy for all sorts of covid-cautiousness. Many people in these high-usage states will only be wearing their mask because of stricter state guidelines mandating them to do so - guidelines which typically also come with stronger rules on restaurants, clubs, events and social distancing in general. By far not all of the effect we're seeing here is attributable to masks.

Masks are definitely helpful, and people should be wearing them in non-socially distanced situations, but at the same time, they shouldnt be glorified as a panacea.

interesting chart. riddle us this then:

Top 4 deaths per 100k by state
https://www.statista.com/statistics/1109011/coronavirus-covid19-death-rates-us-by-state/

New Jersey (D) Governor
New York (D) Governor
Massachusetts (D) Governor
Connecticut (D) Governor

Louisiana is 5th and Rhode Island is 6th. This other CDC site is in-line with the numbers (do deaths, since Jan 21 2020, per 100k)
https://covid.cdc.gov/covid-data-tracker/#cases_deathsper100k

I think that's the main takeaway from all this. People who wear masks often are also more likely to practice social distancing.

My son has it, his aunt, so does his grandparents. I just tested negative. I made him cut a cord and a half of wood with me last weekend and he was complaining about being tired and I was just calling him a pussy, telling him to swing the maul.
